Review: PRIEST

Starring Paul Bettany, Karl Urban, Cam Gigandet and Maggie Q. Produced by Sony International Pictures.

About Priest:
In an alternate world, humanity and vampires have warred for centuries. After the last Vampire War, the veteran Warrior Priest (Bettany) lives in obscurity with other humans inside one of the Church's walled cities. When the Priest's niece (Lily Collins) is kidnapped by vampires, the Priest breaks his vows to hunt them down. He is accompanied by the niece's boyfriend (Cam Gigandet), who is a wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q).

Before watching this movie, I haven't got a clue who Paul Bettany or Maggie Q are, but I like them now! However, Karl Urban is one of my fav authors but he plays the bad guy.

I like this angle on the vampire take... that vampires are a totally different specie to humans. Just as cats are of a different specie to dogs. I also like the action flicks, they were presented in such an authentic manner that I could totally believe that these priest warriors can do it. Awesome! For those bike enthusiasts, I guess the bikes in the movie would be like a "bike-candy" to you. They look fast and fab with nitro boosts which makes them go even faster! Cool!!It being a vampire movie, it didn't have too much gory details which I like. Just enough to make it realistic but not too much to make me wanna be sick. However, there were a couple of scenes there though that did not follow rational thought which brought the "suspension of disbelief" down a notch. But on the whole, I enjoyed this movie and was worth the money I paid for it at the cinema.Overall, I'd give this movie a 4 out of 5.

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 cherries

  1. Thanks for the review. I've been wanting to see this.

  2. Awesome and I wanna see it :D..well on DVD

  3. What did you think about the way the movie began?It freaked me out a bit as the beginning was never leaked in a preview and I had no idea that the movie was based on a graphic novel...

    If you enjoyed Paul Bettany as the lead priest watch him in the movie Legion as a fallen angel, he is gorgeous...

    Karl Urban won my heart as Bones in the Star Trek movie with Chris Pine Cherry and than again as the assassin in R.E.D. who ends up helping out Bruce Willis and the other "bad guys" who ultimately turn out to be the "good guys" in the movie...

  4. I wasn't sure about this movie, but I will definitely go see with my hubby.

  5. Sounds excellent. I love Paul B.
